Don Quixote, originally published in two parts in 1605 and 1615, stands as Cervantes' belated but colossal literary success. A work which has achieved mythic status, it is considered to have pioneered the modern novel. Don Quixote, a poor gentleman from La Mancha, Spain, entranced by the code of chivalry, seeks romantic honor through absurd and fantastic adventures. His fevered imagination turns everyday objects into heroic opponents and stepping stones to greater glory; each exploit serves as a comic, yet disturbing commentary on the psychological struggle between reality and illusion, fact and fiction.
This celebrated translation by Charles Jarvis offers a new introduction and notes which provide essential background information.

Mio caro don Chisciotte, sono passati decenni dal nostro primo incontro. Bimbetta settenne, m’accompagnasti per mano nel tuo mondo incantato. Imparai a vedere il bello grazie a te che iniziata l’avventura trasformasti in castello l’osteria. E sempre grazie a te capii che anche la più folle delle ide...
Mit grandiosem Einfallsreichtum erzählt Cervantes von den Abenteuern des verarmten Adligen, der in einer Traumwelt vergangener Ritterzeiten lebt, und seines treuen Waffenträgers Sancho Pansa. Ähnlich wie Goethes Faust für die Deutschen ist Don Quijote für die Spanier zum Sinnbild eines nationalen Ge...
Il vaut mieux gagner de quoi vivre en plaisant au plus grand nombre que gagner la gloire en ne plaisant qu'à quelques-uns.Je vis en mourant, je brûle dans la glace, je tremble dans le feu, j'espère sans espoir, je reste quand je pars.Une large et profonde rivière divisait en deux un vaste domaine.
